December 17th, 2016 - Austin Hubbard Attends Gateway Dirt Nationals in St. Louis
1Wrapping up the 2016 campaign, Austin Hubbard made the trip to The Dome at America’s Center (St. Louis, Missouri) on Thursday night for the inaugural VP Racing Fuels Gateway Dirt Nationals presented by Karl Performance. Drawing 97 Super Late Models for two rounds of time trials on Thursday, Hubbard earned the 3rd-starting spot for his heat on Friday after posting 20th fastest time in his first session of quallying. Transferring only the heat race winner into the $5,000-to-win preliminary feature, Hubbard placed 2nd behind Jason Feger sending him into the B-Main. Sending the Top 4 into the main event, Austin was running in a transfer spot until breaking a fuel pump forcing him to pull in.

On Saturday night starting 3rd in his C-Main, Hubbard charged to a consolation win putting him 17th on the starting rundown for the B-Main. Needing a 6th place finish or better to make the $20,000-to-win finale, Austin Hubbard stormed through the field nine spots but fell two spots short of a transfer position with a 8th place outing.
